 Union (Santa Fe) vs.  Fluminense - Match Report - May 19, 2022

(EFE) — Unión de Argentina and Fluminense de Brasil signed a goalless draw this Thursday in Santa Fe that benefited Junior de Barranquilla, who will reach the last day as leader of Group H of the CONMEBOL Sudamericana. However, the Tatengue will also depend on themselves to keep the only place available for the round of 16 of the continental competition.

After five dates completed in the zone, the Colombian team leads the classification with 10 points, followed by Unión with 9 and Fluminense with 8, while the eliminated Oriente Petrolero de Bolivia closes without units.

Unión began with great momentum in its 15 de Abril stadium in search of a victory that would allow it to reach the last day positioned for classification, but both the Uruguayan Jonatan Álvez and Kevin Zenón did not find space and precision to violate the fence defended by Fabio .

Fluminense, meanwhile, opted for a tactic of withdrawal and counterattack in search of his reference in the rival area: the Argentine Germán Cano who, however, had to fall too far behind to make contact with the ball.

In the second half the procedure did not change and in the 64th minute a clear came for the locals with a shot by Mauro Luna Diale that required a reaction from Fabio and then a cross from Roldán that required another intervention from the Brazilian goalkeeper.

The last twenty minutes of the game were played by a Union with more impetus than footballing ideas looking to twist the zero and a Fluminense who never had the decision to risk to take the three points to Rio de Janeiro.

With three minutes remaining, the player Juan Nardoni enabled Luna Diale to face the Fluminense goal and his shot went just wide in the clearest of the entire match.

It was a goalless draw in Santa Fe, so the definition was left open for the last date of this Group H, which next Thursday will have the duel between Junior and Unión in Barranquilla and Oriente Petrolero receiving Fluminense in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. .

If the match that will be played on Colombian soil has a winner, that will be the one classified to the next instance, while the Flu needs to win in Bolivia and the Metropolitan Stadium dictates a tie between Argentines and Colombians to advance in the CONMEBOL Sudamericana.
